"Our civilization is fast approaching a tipping point"

Long before global warming came along, fossil fuels were bad for humankind, sez Michael Stermer, a professor and author who laid out his theories this week for the Los Angeles Times.

Stermer blames non-renewable fossil fuels for the world’s unending political/economic turmoil of the last 500 years.

"Our civilization is fast approaching a tipping point," Shermer argues. Like Al Gore and T. Boone Pickens, he believes we must transition towards future reliance on renewable energy sources if humankind is to survive.

Transition is the magic word.
